iI have made two visits to Dr. Wray . The reason for the visits were for shortness of breath , I am 74 years old ,The doctor on my first visit diagnosed me as having Asthma and prescribed medication . I did not get better . In fact my symptoms worsen ! On the second visit , Dr Wray said he missed diagnosed me and He could not do anything for me. He charged me two co-pays and my insurance several hundred dollars . I Guess you pay for an incorrect diagnosis just like for one that is correct .

Not a positive one. He comes in at 11:30, I had a 11:45 appointment (and I work for a living), and by 12:45, I was still waiting. I had to leave as I was using my lunch break for my doctor's appointment - they assured me I was next but, as each visit lasts about 20 minutes at the most, I couldn't understand why I'd been waiting so long. So I left. I have another appointment in April - we'll see how it goes.

I'm thankful for the referral to Dr. Wray. I was seeing doctors in another state, but my daughter, who is an RN , asked me to come to Nashville. I have been seeing Dr. Wray for over a year now. He is professional, knowledgeable, kind and takes time to answer my questions. His staff is also to be commended for their attitude and friendliness. I will definitely recommend him to my family and friends.
